Event #44: $2,500 Seven Card Razz

Chen Misreads Hand


Dragun: (X)(X) / {7-}{8-}{3-}{J-} / (X)
Chen: (X)(X) / {2-}{A-}{A-}{J-} / (X)

We caught up with the action on fifth where Martin Dragun bet and Tommy Chen called. The action was the same on sixth as well as on seventh until Chen came in with a raise instead of just a call. Dragun went into the tank for quite a while but eventually made the call. Chen confidently turned over his cards which were {7-}{2-}{5-} for a jack-low. Dragun looked confused at first until the dealer announced that Chen did indeed have a jack-low. Dragun then revealed {10-}{4-}{7-} for a ten-low which was good to win the pot. Afterwards, Chen admitted that he misread his cards and must have thought that he had something better, otherwise he might not have bet. Even with that mistake though, his raise nearly worked.
